BJP leaders meet Prez, seek CBI probe into Bengal MLA's death

New Delhi, Jul 14 (IANS): The BJP on Tuesday alleged that 'jungle raj' prevailed in West Bengal, after a delegation of senior state party leaders meeting President Ram Nath Kovind here to demand a CBI probe into the death of party MLA Debendra Nath Ray.

BJP leader in charge of West Bengal unit affairs, Kailash Vijayvargiya, said: "Jungle Raj is prevailing in West Bengal. We do not trust any agency of West Bengal. So, the entire case should be investigated by the CBI."

The senior BJP leader alleged that the MLA was "killed" and was not a suicide case as it is made out to be.

Vijayvargiya told reporters that he had apprised the President of the situation and sought his intervention for the "sake of justice". Union Minister Babul Supriyo was also present on the occasion.

The body of the BJP MLA was found hanging by a rope in West Bengal on Monday. The state BJP accused the ruling TMC for the death of Roy, who represents the Hematabad reserved seat in North Dinajpur.

State police had recovered a suicide note from the pocket of the BJP MLA and dubbed it a case of suicide.

The BJP is observing a 12-hour bandh across north Bengal on Tuesday to protest against this "mysterious" death of its MLA, which has become the latest BJP-TMC flashpoint in the state.
